The power for the streetlightscomes from the “Solar Power Station”. Approximate solar array size: 96” x 65” The Solar Power Station can also power irrigation control systems and other loads, Spring through Fall The Solar Power Station can be configured as an emergency charging station for personal electronicsand other devices

Each Solar Power Supply (SPS) unit connects to 1 or 2 street or parking lot lights.THE FOLLOWING ILLUSTRATION SHOWS HOW TRENCHING IS REDUCED BY 45% OR MORE COMPARED WITHA CONVENTIONAL STREETLIGHT INSTALLATIONStreet1 2 3 and 4 5 and 6StreetlightSolar Power Supply Lights 1, 2 are powered by their own individual SPS. With lights 3, 4 and 5, 6, the SPS powers two lights. Site design will dictate the distance from the lights to the SPS.SOLAR POWER SUPPLY EXAMPLESGround level installation, 12’ high pole keeps solar panels out of reachwith clearance for lawn mowers and snow

As aresult of sidewalks rehabilitation work, the power cable was damaged beyond repair and the light ceasedfunctioning. The solar power supply, designed and installed by Solar Electrics, restored power to the light at a lowercost than installing a new power cable. The existing 150watt HPS lamp was replaced with a 27watt LED lamp Should a power outage occur, the light will be unaffected, it’s solar powered. An option is available toprovide community members with 120volt household power to recharge electronics (cell phones,tablets and laptops) during power outages. This installation is similar to the Hybrid Solar Street Light on the previous page. Existing site conditionsdictated the location of the solar panel.In NEW projects, the solar panel can be placed at a greater distance from the light
